The World Federation of Trade Unions, on behalf of its 105 million workers in the 5 continents, strongly condemns the new employer’s crime that took place in India after a crane collapsed at the site of an under-construction bridge in Shahapur.
The new fatal occupational crime took place on Monday night about 70 km north of Mumbai city in the western Indian state of Maharashtra and resulted in 17 dead workers and 3 injured.
We express our sincere and cordial solidarity with the relatives and colleagues of the workers who lost their lives. The international class-oriented trade union demands the unconditional and immediate implementation of adequate health and safety measures in all workplaces.
No more blood for the sake of profit.
